this year. "nightly news" begins now. >>> from nbc news world headquarters in new york, this is "nbc nightly news" with brian williams. >> good evening, i'm natalie morales in for brian. just how bad is the situation in washington with only five days left before we reach the fiscal cliff? in a highly unusual move, lawmakers are being called back to work during this holiday week. but if today was any indication, it doesn't appear congressional leaders are ready to play nice, as they continue to play the blame game and point fingers at each other. meanwhile, many americans are feeling high anxiety, knowing those automatic spending cuts and tax hikes will impact every single one of us if there is still no deal by monday night. we begin our coverage with nbc's capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. kelly, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, natalie. the mood here really feels like resignation, that the fiscal cliff deadline will come and go, and no agreement reached. democrats and republicans say they want progress, but there is nothing to report. but there are plenty of recriminations

on the floor of the new york stock exchange for "squawk on the street" to see this new acquisition dynamic play out. today nyse agreed to be acquired by intercontinental exchange, a new upstart with not even a dozen years of trading under its belt. this went from $24.32 and change, had a fantastic appreciation, which shows you how an icon being american business can be worth much more than it's trading for, providing a competitor gets to acquire it. separate these companies, know what they are? they're part of a dog eat dog unverse of exchanges and an industry with way too much capacity. together they become the global power house that can dominate futures trading. in other words, this is a dodd-frank legislation made me do it deal. it shows both companies are willing to do what's right for you, the shareholders, even our f our leaders aren't willing to do what's right for you, the taxpayers. sadly the new york stock exchange is something that we used to come into a newer company because the equity business, which is its bread and butter, has shrunk and changed dramatically. it's kind of more l

"fiscal cutoff gradually morphs into fiscal horizon." than we get a deal january 1, 2, 3, but people talking mid-january, talking about end of january. i saw one of the pieces, early february for the first time. >> early february. right. >> i thought the markets were supposed to be going into sort of t.a.r.p. style dives by now. when does that happen if it does ever? >> yeah, well, i would still say, you know, as i said a couple of weeks ago, if that's going to happen i would stay probably bo probably goes into february when you bring in the debt ceiling. i think one of the most dangerous statements made i think last week was just when they said, well, we're willing to do a small deal now and really hammer this home in another debt ceiling debate. and i think -- if that becomes the mode usond reven-- the mo mos eperendi, it will weigh more negatively. the bottom line is, the data's been good. i'm not saying that the market's done the wrong thing. >> quickly because we got to go, my sense and great worry is that people saw what
what's amazing about this? outside of the metropolitan new york area nobody cares about this. nobody. >> p but we're sitting in the middle of the metropolitan area. >> you're optimistic, a lot of people in the metropolitan area don't care. >> especially after this season. sanchez had his best game of the season week 1 against the bills. he completed over 70% of passes. people predicted the jets would go undefeated. they were wrong. time for college football now. duke and cincinnati facing off in the always epic belk bowl in charlotte. let's start at the end. the fourth quarter, game tied, 34-34 with a minute and a half left. the ball is loose, and the bearcats recover. they have a chance to win it in the final minute in the ensuing cincinnati possession. he fights his tight end and finds him. travis kelsey waddles along and outruns the secondary and goes all the way for an 83-yard td. that's your game winner. bearcats win 48-34. >> the real bowl games begin tonight. >> virginia tech versus rutgers. >> at 5:30 this afternoon. >> i'm going to be awake no matter what. go, hokies. >> 5:3

, with the sort of patchwork vision of how this could work? because in new york, in august, there was a shooting outside the empire state building, and highly trained new york city police officers ended up wounding nine bystanders. doesn't that create also a dangerous precedent that's worth some concern and caution? >> no. because here's -- what's the alternative? 20 students massacred, six administrators, teachers? this is going to happen again and again and some people out there are trying to be thoughtful and say, well, let's restrict gun ownership or possession or the size and capacity of magazines, thinking somehow that this will improve school safety. it will not. and so, i'm trying to be realistic, is how can we do it, when you refer to new york city. some of the key elements in safety, in law enforcement officers are trained in this, and should be far more disciplined. and not to criticize these new york officers, but you always watch your backstop, in anyone this your environment, before you fire at anybody. and so, every police officer, just because we wear a badge, we're not superhero
's acc e accused of luring in and shooting new york firefighters. and a strike that would have crippled business has been overted for now. both sides agree to a one-month contract extension. back to "hardball." >> welcome back to hardball. the tragic school shooting has put renewed focus not just on the give ups, but on school safety itself. >> i call on congress today to act immediately to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every single school in this nation. and to do it now. >> but here's what it looks like when you run the numbers. slate magazine took a look at what a program to put armed guards in every school might cost. there's nearly a hundred thousand public schools and the average police officer makes about $55,000 a year. so a lowball estimate would be about 5.4 billion tlars a year. what can we really do to keep our children safe from guns? good question. joining me now experlt, mie michael nutter of philadelphia and eugene robinson. mayor nutter, thank you so much for joining me. you're on the front line every time there's a homicide in philad
bernie madoff in queens, new york. >> i just saw him, and i was sort of swept away, i think. >> she married him at age 18. they had two sons: mark, then andrew. bernie was building up his money management business. a typical middle-class family living on long island. >> we were both solid parents and valued our family and so proud of our boys. it was a dream, really. >> exactly when bernie madoff went wrong is unclear. but as his reputation for delivering steady profits grew, the madoffs began living the good life. a penthouse in manhattan, homes in palm beach and the south of france, and yachts in both places. >> he was a big figure in the industry. he was the chairman of nasdaq. he was constantly being honored as "man of the year" of this organization and that. and that--that had an effect on me. >> both sons went to work as traders for their father's firm in the late '80s, a time authorities believe madoff's ponzi scheme was well under way. why would your father want to taint his sons by bringing into a situation that could, well, spell disaster? >> you know, that's-- that's a gr
of daylight. that's the forecast for today as we get toward new york. high around 43 degrees. buffalo up to around 38. boston, high of 40. into the midwest, we're warming up a little bit here around chicago. we've got temperatures working into the 40s today. 51 in st. louis. 38 in minneapolis. that's going to feel nice after a couple of days in the teens. here's the preview for the next storm. this arrives for saturday. mostly rain. snow across minnesota. northern wisconsin doesn't look like a major event. but for some of the ski areas, new york state up into new england, sunday, this could be a good-looking forecast. maybe some snow here. looks like rain down the city toward washington, d.c. too warm for snow out of this one. stay tuned. next wednesday, guys, could be talking about a nor'easter, it's been a while since we've seen one of those. >> oh, no. >> just want snow. it's not -- correct me if i'm wrong because i've been wrong, it's not winter yet, is it? i'm afraid to say how many days it is because i'll mess up the math. it's not winter yet. we -- >> it's technical. in weather wo

" on this final friday trading session of the year. i'm carl quintanilla at the new york stock exchange, along with melissa lee. >> that's a good song. >> i actually requested that a few moments ago. cramer and faber had the day off. the market has a few jitters as we enter what is going to be an interesting day. of course, the meeting at the white house, 3:00 between the president and some congressional leaders. as for europe, getting some data out of japan overnight and some data out of europe. currently red arrows across the board, in london, paris, and frankfort. our road map begins at the white house. congressional leaders set to meet with the president, 3:00 p.m. this afternoon. senator reid has already said hopes of a deal are fading quickly. just two trading days left until the cliff. and it's not just the fiscal cliff. wind farms and dairy are set to get hit. >> the ports of the east coast and gulf coast are bracing for a potential strike. the potential for this, midnight sunday with a shutdown threatening to threaten 20% of the cargo traffic. >> and instagram feeling the sting of the
in a real way? >> i don't know of any specifically, but they're basically all saying it. new york city comes to market multiple times a year. >> all the old bonds will be type. is that right? >> i'm going to make the stand and say that they will. but in the last -- >> then they become more dear, won't it seems to me. >> yeah. but what had happened is that last week and the week before, all of a sudden there was this thought because it had been thrown about that it wouldn't be retroactive. on top of that -- >> why wouldn't that cause him to go up? >> because that means that the tax, the cap on deductions would be retroactive to all bonds. >> it wouldn't be retroactive. >> no. what happened two weeks ago was that had been on the table. >> that it would be retroactive? exactly. >> how can dow that when speak -- >> right. when people bought it on the expectations. on top of that sending the market into the additional turmoil, you have all the brokerage firms saying, you have huge gains. you have more coming into the market. >> the question is, given that weakness, given all that selling, are you
measuring these things bay back in the '60s. out of all the boats registered in new york, something like 6.8% were damaged in new jersey, the figure was over 15%. so you have this big group of boat owners with insurance checks in hand which suggests to me we're about to see a big surge in boat buying. and that means the stock to own is brunswick corp. bc. the number one maker of boats on earth. now, you might think this would be a bad time to buy brunswick, given that this company makes some of the most discretionary items imaginable. basically a toymaker for the rich. and taxes on the rich are about to rise in a big way. even if we get a fiscal cliff deal. it will almost certainly include higher rates for the top 2% because the bobama refuses to b from that position. if the wealthy are going to get hit with a major tax hike, does it really make sense to own the stock of a company that owns motor yachts? not only that, but brunswick also makes billiard tables, fancy fitness machines and bowling equipment. bowling may be more of an every-man activity. i've got my own ball and shoes, yet thr
that are trying to rebuild. our national correspondent deborah feyerick is joining us from new york with more information. what's going on here, deb? >> you know, wolf, a number of people who have already started complaining about breathing problems and the problem is likely to only get worse. every day nancy suits up for a battle she's determined to win. >> i give myself four hours. you do both sides and the top. >> reporter: bleach, hydrogen peroxi peroxide, vinegar, even professionals have not been able to kill the flood in the wake of sandy's floodwaters. >> i'm trying to stay ahead of it. >> reporter: thousands of volunteers from world care center have been gutting houses ripping out floors, walls and insulation if not cleaned properly mold continues to grow and can make people very sick. >> it's everywhere. >> reporter: dan has seen it before. the mold can multiply and become a toxic situation. >> reporter: he travels the country with an organization that helps people affected by hurricanes and floods. people will get sick. >> you will see upper respiratory issues and allergies going on
monday morning. welcome to "squawk on the street." we are live from the new york stock exchange. let's take a look at the u.s. futures set up for the open first of the week. dow looking at about 50 points right after the open. as for the action in europe, taking its cues from the united states. we'll see a big rally in china extending one of its biggest rallies in three years. we have a mixed bag in europe with italy up by about .2 of 1%. >> we'll do our best to keep focused on the business day. we'll be following the tragic shooting in connecticut, of course. the new york stock exchange will hold a moment of silence to honor the victims in the next few moments, and we'll be looking at the president's call for meaningful action and the politics of gun control. >> let's get to a road map for this morning. it starts with apple. under pressure once again. even dipping below $500 a share at some point this morning. shares will remain range bound near term. iphone 5 sales and cannibalization among the region. >> other concessions from the gop, the speaker proposing tax hikes for millionai
organization whether "the new york times" and say wait a minute, this is so freaking far out. this kind of claim goes back to at least joan mccarthy. but at least the specificity of it. and that somehow -- some people believe there are 81 communists in the democratic party. some don't agree. let's hear for the pros and the cons here. >> one of my favorites was when rick santorum insisted that president kennedy's religious speech in houston put religion out of the public sphere and made him want to throw up. not one reporter who reported that remark went to google -- and i did -- looked at that speech and said as a matter of fact he talks about the role of religion. he talks about the priests in his life. so it's sort of like you're just -- i understand that on deadline it could be difficult, but you're just allowed to spew this stuff and people don't even sometimes use the basic tools of journalism to say really? is that what president kennedy said? >> the best line in that speech which may be kennedy's best speech was the interest here is not what church i go to, it's what america i be
this week, a young man armed with an ar-15 assault weapon they are banned in new york. you can't get them here. it's illegal. well, they're not banned in most states in america. almost everyone i've spoken to, who isn't rabidly pro-gun thinks there should be a sensible debate about banning those kinds of weapons again. what is your view? >> i agree there should be a sensible debate about it. i didn't agree that it necessarily should result in immediate gun control because i look at the murder that took place in norway or in finland where, what, 79 people were killed without a gun. so the reality -- the reality is if you want to have a sensible debate about weapons like this, we should take a look at how can we put some restrictions on them, how can we make sure they're in the hands of the right people. but please don't use it as a way of not dealing with what's really going on, which these people are extremely dangerous. i think a lot of any increase we see in crime doesn't come from guns, it comes from a lack of responsibility in society. >> i keep hearing it's not the guns, it's its peo
was interesting. he ended his last speech at the economic club of new york, i believe, by saying if we could just get past what is ultimately a stupid debate. >> right. >> there's some momentum here. and quite frankly for a lot of us in the market, we'd like to move past this. >> do you expect, however, while we fight for this fiscal cliff baloney, do you expect the market selloff? >> sure. >> today notwithstanding, but it finished well off the lows today. >> as jackie talked about, it's up for the week. for the month. i think there's still a modest positive gain. what's interesting in this debate is the two previous times we've increased capital gains, nixon in 1970 and reagan, of course, with the tax reform act of '86. the december preceding the adjustment, the stock market was down. december 1969, december 1986. i don't think people have believed they wouldn't get a deal. when we talked about we're going over the cliff after the election, i think we were the only ones in some level, at least prominence in the ability of coming on your show. we were the only ones saying that could happen. >> ca
